Manhattan-bound F service was disrupted on Wednesday evening after a woman jumped in front of a train at the Seventh Avenue station in an apparent suicide attempt.

The 34-year-old survived the usually fatal leap because the train had slowed significantly as it entered the station at 5:30 pm. She ended up under the train, but suffered only a few deep cuts, an NYPD spokesperson said.

Service was halted for 40 minutes as paramedics pulled the woman from the tracks and rushed her to Kings County Hospital in Crown Heights for treatment.

In the interim, F trains were re-routed to the D line between Stillwell Avenue and lower Manhattan.

The G train was also affected: Service was suspended both ways between Bedford and Nostrand avenues and Church Avenue until everything was cleared up, according to the MTA.

If I ever receive "a few deep cuts" at the subway station at 7th Avenue and 9th Street, I hope that paramedics will "rush" me to NY Methodist Hospital at 7th Avenue and 7th Street, rather than all the way to Crown Heights.

Eric, have you ever been to ER at Methodist? It's the slowest ER I have ever witnessed. I imagine you get faster treatment at KCH. I know you do at LICH.

Lt. Bennett Of Ladder 122 in the picture. Great Job by 122 and 239. Along with help from Rescue 2 and Squad 1. Eric and Chris...I think she wasnt taken to Methodist because it is not a Level 1 Tramua Reciving hospital and this type of stunt would require Level 1 treatment.

Well this is New York, and it was a rush hour.
Normally people would have some sympathy for the poor girl, someone so depressed to do this, most likely without any friends of relatives to console and calm her.

But if there is anything that pisses off the average New Yorker, it's to do anything that disrupts their routine travel. Especially at Rush Hours.
